San Diego Chargers place RB Melvin Gordon on injured reserve
“He has some cartilage damage in his knee that will require surgery,” McCoy said in his press conference. “And they’re going to run some further tests on it to see exactly what they need to do with everything moving forward.”
Gordon, who was selected by the Chargers in the first round of the 2015 draft, left Sunday’s game against the Dolphins with a knee injury and did not return.
His season will end after 14 games, in which he carried the ball 184 times for 641 yards and no touchdowns.
